Subject: Fine Dining in the Animal Kingdom
This Moody Institute science film shows the special ways a number of different animals eat, such as the anteaterâs long nose, the rattlesnakeâs infrared sensors, and the chameleonâs long tongue. As usual, this is all designed to give a creationist message, the overall implication being that evolution cannot explain such clever adaptations. This has some fun animal footage, especially of the archer fish and of baby chameleons, as well as a bizarre experiment done on a snake to show how its infrared sensors work (fortunately, they show the snake being anesthetized beforehand, or this would be upsetting). A typical Moody Science outing with some fun animal images.
Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: ***. Weirdness: ***. Historical Interest: ***. Overall Rating: ***.

Subject: Chronic (what?) cles of Narnia..
Fun short with creationism gobbledigoook thrown in, all about animals and their curious eating habits. Scenes to watch out for are the ridiculous test they put on the snake (poor guy) to test his sonar, the aardvark just tearing up the place looking for food, and soon, food is crawling all over him! Scenes of kingfishers, which IâÂÂve only seen in photographs up until this point, and chameleons, which are the BOMB with their long tongues grabbing up insects left and right (apparently they prefer butterflies). This is also probably the first time IâÂÂve ever seen baby chameleons, which look so gosh darn cute.

PS, this has nothing to do with the Chronic (what?) cles of Narnia. I just canâÂÂt get that song out of my freaking head.
